Families battling cancer need more than a cure.

Impact

We work directly with more than 400 oncology social workers at hospitals across the country to provide thousands of families in cancer treatment with critical financial assistance, education and navigation. Since 2003, our community has helped more than 45,000 individuals from 49 states keep a roof over their head, put food on the table and maintain safe, reliable access to treatment.

Our growing network of supporters assisted more than five times as many individuals in 2016 than in 2012, an astonishing 520 percent increase in five years.

49% are surviving on a post-diagnosis income of less than $24,250.

33% are single-parent households.

How it works

We’re reaching more families battling cancer thanks to people like you. Over the last 10 years, our new programs and expanded scope have provided thousands of individuals with critical financial navigation and education.

$7.5 million allocated to families to help them keep up with everyday bills and maintain a safe, stable environment for their children.

10,000+ families received critical information from our Financial Handbook to help navigate their cancer journey.

1,000+ individuals gained navigation support from our dedicated Family Reach social workers.

1+ million families are diagnosed with cancer each year. We’re giving them a voice through our data collection and research on the financial burden of cancer.
